Does Helen of Troy count? Any woman that has a face that can launch 1,000 ships should live forever.

Seriously, that would be fun. I could get them to give my cousins grooming tips.

Animals, people, animals!

Neanderthal is an interesting one. Anyone ever read the Hominid Series? It's about a Human scientist who opens a portal to an alternate version of the world where Neanderthals became the dominant species and Homo Sapiens went extinct. In this world religion doesn't exist because the Neanderthals lacked a certain portion of the brain that predisposes most Humans to religion (or so the logic of the book goes). Quite an interesting read.

But then, they say that some European populations have Neanderthal DNA in them... so maybe we are them.

I agree, a giant pterosaur like Quetzalcoatlus.

Also, a wool mammoth.
